Spb Mobile Shell has been around for a while, but not for Android. For about a full year it idled as a beta, only available to carriers and OEMs. We took a look at Spb Mobile Shell 5.0 for Android a few weeks ago, and really liked it. The final version of Mobile Shell 3D (called simply Shell 3D) is even better, and it's now available for $14.95. It's a complete homescreen replacement that goes up against the venerable Launcher Pro and ADW Launcher. If you like eye candy, you're going to love what Spb has done. You can add a near-unlimited number of homscreens, four of which are pre-made by ...

For those of you who've been following our "Android Launcher Wars" series, you've already seen Brandon show off LauncherPro, and I showed you ADWLauncher EX.

You can customize almost every aspect of ADW Launcher EX, or use one of the presets as a starting ...

Joe and I agree on a lot of things, but perhaps not on which launcher is best for Android. In this series, he and I will put our favorite launchers head-to-head to help you determine which launcher is best for your needs. First up, Launcher Pro. It's free, though if you want the premium version that allows for resizeable widgets (a hugely useful feature), you have to pay $2.99. What's great about Launcher Pro is that it gives you just enough settings and options to let you customize the heck out of your homescreens, but not too many as to leave you confused and overwhelmed. Have you used ...
